Hi all QueenZoners

It's Ale here, I'm the friend of Luca (HANGMAN)and "partner" involved with him in the Staff of the Italian community www.QueenItalia.it

I sometimes posted on QZ with the nick of "Brian1976".
I would like to let you know about a new Queen fans project that's coming soon.

Take a look here: www.QueenCuttings.com

I hope I will be able to complete the site in this weeks and put it on line... And then, starting to upload cuttings!
I collected "some" good things in this years, so who said that only audio or video stuff have to be shared? ;-)

To do this in the best way possible, I need my stuff for sure to be uploaded but I would also like to receive scans also from you guys!
Also if you don't collect cuttings, maybe you have a little article from your local newspaper, something from 70s or last days, Queen related or only Brian, or Queen+ Paul Rodgers...

If you want to share this things (scans of cuttings, articles, pages of scrapbooks, cover of magazines...) now there is THE PLACE where all this stuff can be archived.

Don't you think it's a good idea to have, to read old reviews of Queen singles, old GOOD articles about the band, old BAD articles (and have some comments on forums or message boards...) and NEW "Classic Rock" articles, for examples?

I think YES, there will be a good idea, so I'm starting the project and I will upload my cuttings... I hope some of you will follow me ;-)

My friend Luca HANGMAN is helping me in this project, that was also an idea from Him.
I have to thank Luca in a special way 'cause he was the guy that helped me with my first steps into the collecting world and especially into the world of the internet, of the web sites and of the HTML codes! Thanks man!

If you need more infos about QueenCuttings.com, if you want to send your opinion on this, your suggestions, your critics or your cuttings, you can write me an email (adresse on my profile or on www.queencuttings.com)

Let me know what you think about all this project, I think that feedbacks are very important.

Rock On!

Ale

Nice initiative guys!

If it are articles, I presume it all needs to be in English? Or do you want foreign languages as well?

Thank you guys!

Yes, send me your scans if you want FriedChicken :-)

To jeroen:
Well I think it's not important in which language articles (or covers, etc..) comes from. English will be understood by ALL of course but I will also updated something from Italy or Japan or others countries with no problems.
Press from all over the world are welcome ;-)

Bye

You would do well to get hold of Mr. Scully - he would possibly be able to make your little project "world class".......

I've got probably the biggest collection of Queen cuttings from the English press from the early years 1973-1978. The problem is that I have absolutely NO time to scan any of that :-(((

Thank you to ALL for your help.

And yes, all future translations are really welcome.

To Mr Scully
I can imagine how large is your collection of cuttings ;-) Don't worry, I think TIME is the big problem for all of us... However you know my email adresse ;)
Thank you

Bye!

Good luck, Ale, I am sure this will be a great website.


I do not want any google ads here.

I don't really know what to do. The cuttings are too big for a scanner so I'd have to take photos of them. So far I've got only a Olympus Camedia photo camera which doesn't really make good photos from close distance. Maybe if I (sooner or later) buy a Panasonic photo camera with the excellent stabilizator and the ultrazoom, it will be easier.

Anyway, let's see what site you create :) I have a feeling this could be a very good site.

I've also got a large amount of cuttings, from all era's.
But same problem here: time! I don't even have time every now and then to answer the e-mails of my dearest...
But if I get the chance I will try to scan some of it. (Including, of course, everything I published myself! ;-)
Is it an idea that you make it possible to just upload the scans somewhere? Might be more practical then e-mailing, considering the amount and size of everything.

Cheers Ale - ciao Luca ;-)

Yes this can be a very good idea, thanks! But I have to find some HTML codes that allow me to do this... And it has to work ;-) Well..

A good temporary solution could be use MEGAUPLOAD.com and indicate my email:
so in just one "click", people can send big files directly to my email adresse.

Don't forget however if you know this, to indicate the date of the cuttings, the year, the month where this is possible. So I can try to do the site the best accurate possible.

Thank you guys for all your suggestions!

Ale

Great project: such a site is very welcome!!! There isn't much press-related stuff on the internet from Queen. It's a nice addition to the WWW

5th july 2006: Just a small update

I'm still uploading scans of cuttings/articles and adverts on QueenCuttings, I think I will "open" my site soon, just in time for the born of my FIRST daughter.... (anyhow by the end of July)
I would like to dedicate this project to her ;-)

I received some contributions from fans, thank you all, hope to receive others.

Rock On

Ale
